First Published: September 26, 2016; Last Updated: Friday, February 19, 2021.Amazon ($AMZN) is the largest retailer on the web. I'm not an Amazon fanatic but I like to shop online (or on Amazon). And I believe Amazon will become a lot more bigger than what it is today. For me Amazon was all about online shopping and shopping only until a few years go, and then I came to know about its dominance in the cloud computing space. That's how I became curious and made a plan to list all its products and services and app (or this very blog post). So today, I’m listing all the products and services and apps by Amazon. And I will be updating this article as they launch more products and services.

Google search, Bing search, or Yahoo search. But have you ever tried the DuckDuckGo search? It's a search engine that doesn't track you and has everything (like suggestions, image search, video search, etc.) you expect from a search engine. There's a very good chance that we end up using only the most popular websites on the web because they are just everywhere. However, it doesn't really mean that they're the best websites on the Internet. Needless to say, "popular" isn't necessarily the best. And that's how I decided to come up with a list of extremely useful (and probably less-known) websites on the web.
The Fantastic Hundred WebsitesWhether you're a student, a professional, or a homemaker, I have hand-picked one hundred most useful websites for you --- to get things done, or to spend time with, or to find something interesting. And no, it doesn't include the Facebooks and Amazons of the world.
There was a time when I (and probably you) struggled with Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop software on a Windows PC to remotely access someone else's computer. It was a terrible experience and never worked for me as it involved quite a few network settings and protocols --- which I still don't understand much. And there were few free and premium remote desktop connection managers like LogMeIn, GoToMyPC, etc. at that time. But I was least interested in trying those remote desktop connection managers as it was of no use to me. Then, with the advent of the smartphone era, I tried remote desktop apps for mobile like Splashtop, PocketCloud, LogMeIn, Join.me, and TeamViewer, etc. and almost all of them failed to impress me. It was simply not the kind of productivity apps that I wanted or even care about. My impression completely changed when Microsoft and Google introduced their own Remote Desktop apps for web and mobile a few years back. The good thing is... both works perfect and is free without any restriction. So here is a quick review (plus comparison) of the 3 (and only 3) best remote desktop access software that are free.
1. Chrome Remote DesktopChrome Remote Desktop is a Google Chrome app that lets you access all your computer(s) from another computer or from your mobile device(s). It can be used for a variety of purposes like to access your own computer from a remote location or to provide (or get) remote support or to securely access your files or software applications on your computer from a mobile device, and so on. What I really like about Chrome Remote Desktop is that it's linked to your Google account. So there's no such thing as an extra user id or special codes to access your computer from another device of yours. And the installation and setup is pretty simple. All you need to do is install the Chrome Remote Desktop app on all your devices (computers, tablets, mobiles) and you're good to go.
There are no limits when it comes to free services on the web. Whether you want to watch a movie, listen to music, read books, start a journal, manage your money, create a document online, or share your files online with someone else, clean your computer, and whatnot. There’s always a free service to do…
I love tools. I really do, and some of them are the ones that I simply can’t live (online) without. That’s how I ended up publishing over a dozen listicles featuring the best productivity tools, blogging tools, marketing tools, social media tools, browser extensions, etc. A quick reminder, these are my personal favorites and hence are not necessarily the…
You can't deny the fact that the default email app on your smartphone isn’t perfect (whether it's an iPhone or an Android). Because it’s just an email client that’s good only to check emails and thanks to its push notifications, which notify you in real-time about new email messages. My personal favorite is Gmail (on the…
Whether you're an artist, or a professional, or a small business owner, or a corporate, email is still one of the best (and popular) ways to communicate over the internet. There are a variety of email services (both free and paid) on the web but selecting one can be confusing due to features and pricing…
If you are still using your computer hard drive, or a flash drive, or your external hard drive as your primary storage, then you need to level up. It's 2021 and you all (probably) have superior internet connectivity than 10 years ago. So here are some of the best cloud storage services in 2021. Dropbox…
There are several to-do list apps on the web that helps you to get things done. However, the problem is finding the perfect task manager because there are so so many of them --- both free and paid. I have tried a bunch of them over the past several years and can definitely say that there is no such thing as a perfect to-do app. It's all about your requirements as all of them offers a variety of features. It also means that if you are looking for a task manager with a particular feature then chances are it already exists. Today, I have cherry-picked three of the best to-do apps, namely Todoist, Wunderlist, and Any.do, that are intuitive, feature-rich, powerful, and massively popular. And I have limited the list to just "3" as I believe they are the best of the best and is probably the only to-do list apps you'll ever need to get things done. Note: I have shortlisted, reviewed, and compared the free plans of Todoist, Wunderlist, and Any.do based on the criteria that I have set personally. But I believe it's comprehensive enough and have highlighted almost all the aspects of the aforementioned apps (citing the web as well as the iOS platforms).

Bloggers can't live without tools! I mean, without their favorite blogging tools. And you probably know that there are hundreds of thousands of free and premium blogging tools on the web that lets you streamline your research, writing, and publishing process. Over the past several months I have published a variety of tools lists: Productivity Tools 101, Social Media Tools 101, Internet Marketing Tools 101, Content Marketing Tools 101, Search Engine Optimization Tools 101, etc. But today, I just want to focus on only one thing --- "Blogging". The idea is to list some of the best blogging tools out there. And the good thing..... most of them are free or freemium or at least comes with a free trial (there are exceptions too, btw). Also, you almost definitely won't need all the tools that are listed here but over time you will see yourself trying many of them (as they are all related in one way or the other). And that's why I have perfectly organized all of them into categories and subcategories --- to make the list easy to scan.
The Best Of The Best Blogging Tools — Curated!A few years ago I tried to come up with a similar list, as a web directory for bloggers and marketers, but then I found it difficult to update as the list was not properly organized or categorized. And that's how I started working on this list. It's your ultimate blogging tools and resources (or at least I think so). However, it's very, very likely that I might have missed your favorite blogging tool as most of the tools that I have mentioned on this list are my personal favorites or something that I already knew existed.
I'm a desktop kind of person who almost always prefer a computer over a phone --- unless I'm away from my desk. I have already mentioned on several blog posts that I take a lot of time to create a blog post --- from researching to writing to editing to formatting. And that's why I'm always trying to find a way to streamline my content creation process --- to make it more consistent, stress-free, and efficient. Obviously, the biggest task involved in publishing a blog post is actually the writing process itself. Once the first draft gets done, the rest happens like magic!
